Third-grade students throughout Waco ISD are the proud owners of new dictionaries thanks to Peter Piper Pizza. More than 3,000 dictionaries have been distributed in Waco ISD this month, part of the more than 90,000 dictionaries the restaurant chain plans to donate this year to schools in Texas and New Mexico.

Peter Piper Pizza spokeswoman Kristin Kudlacek said third-graders were targeted because next spring they will take the STAAR test for the first time. Dictionaries serve as educational tools to help them prepare.
